Round Britain 2019 – Homecoming at Fambridge

Round Britain 2019 – Homecoming at Fambridge

On a sunny Saturday morning, our two boats entered our home creek and berthed for the last time on the sail4macmillan Round Britain cruise 2019. It has been a long trip for our vessels, and some of the crew, and it was only fitting that there should be a rousing reception with banners, flags and air-horns to welcome them in.

Skippers and crew leap ashore surrounded by family and friends.

As the festivities began, crew members were welcomed by family and friends after their long voyage, and wasted no time in getting stuck in to a barbecued burgers and hot dogs, and maybe a well-earned drink or two as well. As the sun shone down on everyone it seemed a fitting end to this years endeavours, and our charity auction helped to raise even more for Macmillad Cancer Support, with items generously donated by our friends at Tiptree Jam and Marinestore, as well as by Premier Sailing.

Jam tasting and fundraising, a fantastic combination!
Some of our sponsors set up stalls for visitors, and provided some much-needed shelter from the sun.

All of us at Premier Sailing would like to say a huge thank you to all who have taken part and supported this year’s cruise, it has been an honour to have met everyone who has taken part and we are humbled by the support given by those at home for this massively important cause.

Thank you all so much.

Now who fancies joining us next year?
